VF Sculpture in MOMA

by

 

A huge AR sculpture we made of a the Bufo Toad (the VF mascot, if you will) is to be installed in the Museum of Modern Art  Saturday afternoon, October 9. Although we understand that this will be part of a permanent collection located at the museum, we are not quite sure where it will be placed. We had planned it for the Atrium Gallery but the curators of the show,”We AR in MoMA,”  Sander Veenhof & Mark Skwarek, feel it might need to be placed in the lobby. The sculpture has the VF logo inscribed on its back and has the potential to allow visitors to climb up to this area and through contact receive a full dose of Virta-Flaneurazine. New readers to this blog might not know that the Bufo Toad toxin, bufotenin, secreted from the amphibian’s back, is a known psychotropic substance to humans, though it can cause seizures in animals. The effects and molecular structure of Bufotenin was an inspiration for VF and so we hold the animal in high regard.

Update: turns out the sculpture was a bit too large for the entrance area. Only a huge leg was visible. The dimensions will be adjusted to fit the location in the near future.
